Can One Law Firm Handle Both Workers Comp and Personal Injury Cases?
When a worker is injured at work, he or she may have both a workers compensation claim and a personal injury case. We get asked all the time whether we can handle both types of cases . Our firm handles both workers compensation and personal injury cases. Most injured workers prefer to have all cases within one firm.
The Benefits of Using a Single Law Firm for Both Workers Comp and Personal Injury Cases
Workers who are injured as a result of their work are entitled to file for workers compensation to cover their medical expenses and lost wages. Sometimes the same injury may also warrant a personal injury lawsuit against the party to blame for the accident. Having a single law firm handling both cases is beneficial to the injured worker because the firm
- knows all the details of the case
- has established trust with the injured worker, and
- has gathered all the necessary information from doctors, employers, police, and other investigations.
Workers Compensation Claims and Personal Injury Cases
If you were hurt at work in a work accident, we can help you with your workers compensation claim and help you secure fair workers compensation benefits. If, due to the same accident, you have the right to sue a another party, referred to by attorneys as a third party, you also would have a second type of case called a personal injury case, third party case, or liability case. There are various titles for that type of case.
